Using ChromaCam (or other) on my Mac to replace a green screen with a static image?

I need to replace the green screen for live streaming with a Logitech C922 on a Macbook.

Does ChromaCam support this? I see other names, like Syphon, CamTwist, VirtualEyez, Veescope, Wirecast, MimoLive (formerly BoinxTV) or Visual Communicator. (ChromaCam is based on Personify, which I think is Windows only.)

I need to run this on my Mac, since Windows runs of parallels, and I see a huge time delay on the webcam that make it unacceptable.

Please let me know.

Thanks

from the video's that I've seen ChromaCam has the least amount of artificing (you do have to remain relatively stationary though -- not normally a problem)

Yes, I changed my plans and decided to use YouTube to stream the video. So, my questions were no longer an issue.
